    Contador was riding for Astana in 2010
    Then this:-

    Again Astana relating to events in 2014.
    Astana's World Tour licence was almost revoked over this in 2015.So we know that from at least 2007 to 2015 Astana were doping!
    Pure speculation?

    It appears you've answered my question you really are that naive
    (I have made it easier for you by highlighting the connecting factor is the Contador saga)

    We have to believe the other "great" Nibali is clean but seeing as he was at Astana when half his Team were caught doping I have to be suspicious.......but that's another debate
    Wow you really have it in for Bertie. Between you hating and CB fancying him Bertie gets lots of attention on this forum.

    At least mine was ridden to second in the Tour de France, albeit in a vile lime green livery and half a kilo heavier.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Far from it!
    I think he's a great rider and actually tweeted "thank you and good luck" to
    him after the Vuelta.I do however dislike the fact he blighted his record.
    I also hate the Double standards surrounding him just because of who he is.
    That's the last I'll post about him on this particular thread.

    Are you bi-polar by any chance?

    Really interesting double page article on Froome in Times today, it's in the "My Sporting Body" section. I don't subscribe anymore so can't post it here(I go old school now and actually buy the paper version just on Saturday). He mentions weight, doping etc

    Anyway, worth a read and just confirms what a decent bloke he is.
    All the gear and no idea.
